The Presidential Council Head and members discussed the need to form the unity government according to the roadmap of the Libyan Political Dialogue Forum and inviting the Chairman of the High National Elections Commission for a meeting next week to consult with him about the arrangements for holding general elections next December.

They also talked about opening communication channels with all parties for a better future for Libya, according to a statement by Menfi's media office.
